Here's one that I'm trying to find out. I didn't see the whole movie, just the trailer. In the trailer 2 teens are making out when the girl's parents pull up in the driveway. The guy quickly gets dressed and climbs out the window so he won't get caught. He jumps down to the ground, thinking that he's gotten away only to land right in front of the dad. Any ideas?

Hello bobcat sounds a bit like mischief from 1985 starring doug mckeon, Kelly Preston and Catherine Mary stuart,if so it's a really fun movie that is worth checking out,I have it in my own personal collection. Here is the trailer which features a scene reminiscent to what you describe but it's the girl's (Kelly Preston's) mother he drops down from the roof in front of. Here is the trailer -

I just saw the name Michael J. Fox and that drew my attention to the thread. What was that film like, Midnight Madness?

Hello,

I'm looking for a movie that I remember seeing as a kid -- this would have been around the late 80s.

I can remember it involved a boy travelling back to the '50s in a tin can shaped like a car, and meeting up with Albert Einstein. Does this sound familiar to anybody?

Many thanks.

Ok I have looked through every message in this topic, searched IMDb.

Ok, I have been trying to find a movie, thought it might be a miniseries. The problem is I cannot remember enough to properly search for it. There is this family with a boy traveling places, nomadic or time travelish. One scene has the boy in a room listening to a commander. The commander has a clod/blue flame coming out a finger or a gun. The boy comes down to put his finger/hand in the flame. The commander tells him, the last time that happened, that boy rebelled. Later they decide to move on because the environment was making the mom sick, possibly due to radiation. I have this kick, where I want to find this out. Live action, color.

I am looking for two movies also. One of the movies I am looking for, someone told me the name years ago and I forgot. The second movie I believe is from the 1980's, but it may be possibly from the early 1990's. Anyone recall a movie from the 80's that takes place in what I remember being a haunted manor. During one scene, a message on the screen reads "put on your 3D glasses." there is a search team looking for them in the woods. the movie ends showing the search party still roaming the woods, a guy in the crowd says something and the film closes. the second film is about women being killed at a sleepover. One girl survives because she outsmarts the killer: one of the girls at the party has a split personality and didn't realize she was the attacker. hope someone can help! thx

The split identity killer was used in both the Slumber Party Massacre and Sorority House Massacre series - it's probably one of those.

There's no split identity (or female killer) in any of them, except for a little supernatural
possession-from-beyond-the-grave sub-plot in Sorority House Massacre 2.

Doesn't sound nothing much like it plot wise and its been a while since I've watched it but didn't 1981's horror/slasher - happy birthday to me have a female killer (Melissa sue Anderson) with a split personality!

Really... I could have sworn the killer was in the girls head or something. I defer to you on this since it's been a while since I watched them.

Q: Looking for an 80s American movie.At the beginning of the movie, it is at nighttime. There are many people and cars. They look young, energetic, slim, thin, wearing fashion clothes, white young women young men. They all park at the same motel & get in to that motel's different rooms. A woman and a man go in their room. The woman sits on dresser and plays guitar and flirts with a man. That man lies on a bed listening to her flirting. She then pukes at sink and she is abandoned by that man in a motel. Both of that woman & that man are white people. That woman says: "Take off that too." "You put it (condom) in your wallet it is becoming moldy." The woman feels uncomfortable and pukes in a bathroom. The man says he will wait for her but gets out to tell everybody to go, and leave that woman in motel alone. [Confused]

Q:What's this movie's name? It's about vampire or werewolf. A vampire woman kidnaps a naive blond man & prepares an initiation on him. A man goes to a store or a library/bookstore searching for a woman who is a vampire hunter. Her store sells items relates to fortune taler & woodoo. That man & woman go to a garage to buy weapons. They are going to save that blond man. Movie Scene is in modern America. It is released after 2010. Maybe a TV-movie. All characters aren't international stars.

Trying to find the name of a mid-80s movie that I only saw the trailer for. All I can remember is 1 or 2 muscular dudes working out in an open loft style space. I don't remember any equipment. I think that they were just doing some really intense sit ups and push ups. They also may have had shaved heads. The trailer had a really serious dramatic tone to it.

EDIT: A couple of pages back, I found that the title of the below film was "Made in Heaven" - I figured I would keep it on here just in case anyone is interested in this & doesn't want to dig through older posts.

My spouse described a 1980's movie to me, and though I pride myself on my knowledge of the genre, I am thoroughly STUMPED! Here is what was described:

Story of a boy who grows up in an upper class home with 2 loving parents, basically an entitled life, and when he is a teen he is killed somehow, but he is reincarnated, this time to a poor, low-class family. He looks EXACTLY the same in his second life as he did in the first life. The only other thing that can be remembered about the film is a part sometime toward the end of the movie where the boy is not quite a teenager anymore and is hitchhiking, and he is picked up by the now-older parents from his first life. They look at him in recognition and look at each other, unbelieving...and other than that, total blank.

Please help me redeem myself!!! Thanks!

Hey - just discovered the above post. Sorry I didn't reply earlier, but this sounds like the extremely short-lived TV show "The Other World" from 1985 - I saw a handful of episodes, and really liked the show. However, it's been over 30 years since I caught this, so my memories re: the details are not clear.

Here's a post I created about this show last year on the '80's TV forum - with some interesting links:

The storyline involved a family who was transported to a parallel universe via a pyramid in Egypt. Very strange, trippy show - though I remember it being interesting & had relatively good effects:

Apparently the show is on DVD somewhere, though I don't think it's Region 1 (U.S.) DVD:

Okay, this one is a short film my brother and I watched in the early 80's. It's live action, short film, color, not a tv show. There's a tiny spaceship that arrives at a park and tries to introduce itself to the people it sees but they're so completely oblivious it ends up getting knocked in the sand, hit with sports equipment, knocked in the trash..I vaguely remember a dog. I'm not sure if there was another tiny ufo that shows up or not. I don't believe there was any dialog.
Side note: I posted about this on a Reddit thread and got a lot of "Batteries not Included" and "Inner Space" responses. Honestly, this thing probably isn't more than 12 minutes long.
